Once you have become a CST, you will be asked to accept the latest CST license agreement (terms and conditions) before you can publish courses and certify students. The agreement describes the appropriate use of Scrum Alliance trademarks, marketing practices, teaching requirements and more. This agreement aims to promote a quality training experience for the student and ensure ethical business practices. Authorized CSTs must also submit an annual fee of USD 5,000 (prorated) with their accepted agreement. These fees are invested to support Scrum Alliance programs and initiatives. We encourage CSTs to continue their professional development, both as a Scrum practitioner and as a general trainer, by meeting the requirements for the renewal of the guides every two years. CSTs must submit Scrum Education Units® (SEUs®) in the following categories: You can also apply to become a Path to CSP® Educator, Advanced Certified ScrumMaster ℠ (A-CSM), Certified Scrum Professional® – ScrumMaster (CSP®-SM), Advanced Certified Scrum Product Owner ℠ (A-CSPO) and Certified Scrum Professional® – Product Owner (CSP®-PO). Add your offer to other certification courses: this is a monumental step that allows you to certify individuals as Scrum Master or Product Owner so that they can positively influence the way they work in their organization by introducing the scrum framework. You will launch a wave effect by serving emerging and practicing scrum practitioners who, in turn, serve their team and others. CSTs must also lead at least 10 courses, participate in a Scrum Alliance event (e.g. Global Scrum Gathering, Regional Scrum Gathering or Agile Coaching Retreat) and meet a community outreach requirement during the two-year cycle. Continue your professional development: Although you have reached this important milestone by finally becoming a CST, we understand that continuous improvement never stops.
Scrum Alliance offers its coaches open access to the Oxford Review so they can use current research in a rapidly changing world of work.
